Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya - UPC posted this:Novel sensor for in vivo nano-mechanical characterizationA nanoforce sensor has been designed to be able to work in aqueous environments. The system is based on a motion amplifier mechanism that allows to amplify extremely small displacements (nanometers) up to 200 times, providing the possibility to characterize the mechano-transduction mechanisms either of a single cell or a tissue in a 3D gel scaffold. Partners to further develop the system applying to specific assays and/or to establish commercial agreements along with technical cooperation are sought.

It allows to improve the quality of geological mapping and to reduce the cost of geological exploration of natural resources. Exploration costs are cut down by excluding/reducing the scope of surface and subsurface exploration in unpromising areas. The university seeks for partners to sign commercial agreements, R&D agreements, and service contracts.

It uses a high-frequency and highly sensitive vector magnetometer, gamma-spectrometer, gas analyzer, as well as special software for data processing, which creates a high-precision description of the depth of occurrence and morphology of the ore body, archaeological artifact or other magnetic anomaly with the size of up to tens of centimeters and less. Due to this, the costs of exploration are significantly, often more than 10 times lower than using conventional methods.

This sensor allows to detect and quantify the surrounding humidity by optical transduction. The device is based in the optical response of a photonic crystal. This humidity sensor has been successfully tested showing response times under one second. Industrial partners manufacturers of sensors are being sought to collaborate through a patent license agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:System for reliable detection of occupancy of parking spacesThe research group in “Electronic engineering applied to intelligent spaces and transport (GEINTRA)” of the University of Alcalá presents an artificial vision system with telemeter, which combines the information from a video camera and an steerable telemeter, to inform and guide reliably to the user when finding a parking space for their vehicle in large areas of surface parking such as a shopping center or train station. The combination of those data, makes it possible to easily locate vehicles in the car park regardless of their type or size and the environmental conditions / lighting (e.g. at night). The research group looks for town halls and companies in charge of the management/administration of car parks, to reach license agreements, collaboration agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance. There is a great added value in an application that combines the knowledge of the free spaces and the vehicles in movement through the parking so it can provide the right indications to the user guiding him to a free space.

The group seeks for licensing agreements, technical cooperation agreements, manufacturing agreements and commercial agreements with technical assistance with companies that perform maintenance and commercialization of precision kinemometers and companies that produce intelligent systems of transport.
